Additionally, the area behind the northeast goal houses the largest outdoor bar in North America, a two-acre fan zone and a double-sided video scoreboard. The suites and club seats are located at field level. The stadium is part of a mixed use residential, retail, R&D and hotel development.The stadium was constructed privately with no public money provided by the city of San Jose.

  • Went to see the US Women's National Team play Romania. Loved the stadium - not a bad seat in the house. Lots of food choices with the food trucks and the regular stadium food. Lines for bathroom and s...  more »
  • A brand new stadium next to a shopping center and airport. parking is a nightmare at best and access in and out is horrid. and be be paired to be accosted by aggressive homeless panhandlers. 
  • There isn't a bad seat in the stadium...built European style with seating on the second level...the longest bar behind the East End Goal a feature that spectators enjoy!

  • Seats are fairly comfortable, I've been on several different levels and sides and it seems like each had a good view. The food is pretty darn good. Love the food trucks. Great place to see a soccer game! They do a decent job of parking, but too few outlets. Everything goes through two lights.
  • It's a fun stadium. Nice size. Really good views of the mountains and fun to watch planes land while watching the game. Lots of good beers to choose from. I recommend getting a hot dog from the vendors in the parking lot after the game.
  • Enjoy a game at the largest outdoor bar! This stadium is unique with its open end field, where food trucks and vendors gather before and during games with delicious food and prizes. Sitting on the grass in this area grants you perfect game viewing on the big screen, where you can bring your picnic blankets and enjoy. The only improvement would be parking, as I'm still getting dust off everything in my car from the vast dirt lot.
  • Really nice stadium - food trucks are great, but the normal concession stands inside are really good too. And the outdoor bar is fantastic. Seeing planes land behind the scoreboard is pretty cool.
  • My family and I went to watch a soccer game there 10-7-16 the game it self was great there customer service the wrost I've ever experienced they where rude yelling at people, things that where being sold in the parking lots where not allowed in the stadium people where told to throw them away or take them back, security where total a**h*l*s
